1.25-inch telescope adapter for ASI120mm camera? new
      #5645981 - 01/27/13 12:34 PM

I'm interested in getting an ASI120mm camera and have one question: Where can I get the 1.25-inch telescope adapter pictured in the following link?
http://www.zwoptical.com/eng/Cameras/ASI120/index.asp

From what I can tell, it's not already included with the camera.

Thanks!

That looks like a common 1.25" nosepiece with t-threads.

Are you certain it's not included? I was under the assumption that is was included

No, I'm not certain. I just can't find a list of the contents. Maybe I should order the camera and see if it comes with the adapter before buying one separately.

2 things that made me assume there was a 1.25" adapter included: the series of pics on the web page for this camera showing some assembly instructions for installing the 1.25" adapter and also further down that page listed in the "Specifications" is 2"/1.25" adapter. I guess this is still an assumption, not a definite "yes, it's included".

Teleskop-Express.de sells this camera in Europe, and they list the adapter as being included:

ASI 120 mm

The standard 1.25" threaded nosepiece came with my ASI120, received earlier this month.
